Oxgangs loop, with a gratutious and failed effort to cut through PMR adding distance

Hermitage + climb and lap of site. Nothing in the tank today.
This weekend saw the IOF high level event conference, with exciting topics like:
“Experiences and lessons learnt from WOC 2015 in Scotland”,
Curiously, nobody from the WOC2015 team was actually invited to speak. I hear they want to avoid further disasters like this.
Still no report from the SEA, still no word of the Russian protest, the IOF's parallel universe just goes on getting more surreal.
Running warm up/down 10:00  1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
Running warm up/down 30:00  3.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
Relatively quick, as it was p*ssing down and I needed to stay warm.
Orienteering race 15:05  2.2 mi (6:51 / mi)
Scottish Sprint Champs, S.Queensferry. Very wet and slippery, so mincing about on the grassy bits. Lost time at 1, vague control description "road bend" which I assumed would be obvious when I got there, but turned out to mean "stuffed down between the unmapped saltbox and the unmapped hedge." Clean after that, losing a bit of time on avoiding a grassy option on a long leg back across the A90, and not spotting a connection to a gap in a hedge. 3rd M50, behind JayH and DaveR, as I would expect. Young Rayward won by about a minute, just under 13.
Orienteering race 17:58  2.5 mi (7:11 / mi)
8th on the prologue, and no Barry Veitch in the cahse so off we go into a 30sec gap to Al Hindle with baronmax a mere 18sec back. On the long dead run to 1, expected Max to catch up, but he didn't. Best route to 1 was jump a wall and up a grassy slope - so round the tarmac and backdoor that one. Clean through the confusion on the high street with an illegible map, just looking for other runners. Then went high at 7, wrong side of the uncrossible crossible wall, lost 20 legitimate seconds (and 20 illegitimate ones to those who went through an crossible uncrossable fence, though to be fair much else was guesswork), and Clive Masson was on me and away. Hauled him back, with a wee stop when Katie Reynolds fell - Clive helped her up, I rudely went on at half peg but he was soon ahead again, then through the last section he kind of faded away so my flat out sprint with a random old lady to the finish wasn't critically exposed (it being just over 30% slower than jayh's "ungainly waddle to the finish").
So, even with only one leg these sprints are fun :)
